Offseason rumor talk

45 posts in this topic

Post any offseason rumors you have for the Twins here.

I heard something that the Twins are interested in Orlando Cabrera? Great player, and he would definitely improve us, but doesn't he have a bad attitude?

Griffey Jr was cut by the Sux, would make a decent everyday DH, imho.

hes way to old and falling apart

Can still hit 25+ HRs a year. As a DH ONLY I said. Don't put him in the OF, thats an injury waiting to happen

He's left handed. We need a right handed power hitter. I know it will never happen but Manny would be nice.

I have heard talk of Garret Atkins and Adrian Beltre via the trade market or the signing of Casey Blake via free agency

Heard this morning that the Rangers plan to pick up about a $13 million option on Blalock but they're not sure where he'll play. My guess is DL and Round Rock.

I've heard rumors of Casey Blake and Orlando Cabrera. Blake makes some sense if the price is right but don't really understand Cabrera given the number of infielders we have already but that might be contingent on what happens with Punto.

I can't imagine any scenario where the signing of a player would depend on Punto unless the signed player requires Punto to carry his supporter.

lol. well you've got to remember we are talking the twins and low budget here and I'm sure they are going to do what they can to re-sign him and if they do, it wouldn't seem that they need another player that can play ss. they won't re-sign punto with the idea that he's going to be riding the pine.

I'd take that deal. Where else we going to stick Cuddy? At third as well? I'll take Atkins offense over Cuddyer's.

today I heard Delmon Young to SD for Kevin Kazmanoff (not positive of spelling). I think I like the Cuddy/Atkins rumor better than this one though if they are going to acquire a new 3b.

It's Kevin Kouzmanoff. I'd rather take the Cuddyer for Atkins trade. Atkins is a better offensive threat. I guess I'm not sure how Kouz is on the defensive side, but Atkins holds his own.

Delmon Young has too much potential, and I feel he'll play at Cuddyer's level next year, or maybe better.

I am all for giving Young one more season, as long as his defense improves, and I would like to see 20+ HRs as well. If he continues misplaying pop flies, trade him.

Agreeable. I just think last year was his year to get used to playing left field in that nasty Metrodome.

8 errors at a new position, its not good, but he did have 11 assists.

garrett atkins WOULD BE HUGE for us, I just hope that someone else doesnt snap him up first.

Hes a big solid player

298 career hitter 100+ rbi guy 20 jacks

good fielder

Right handed hitter

Cuddy is the odd man out

He may have only had 8 errors, but he misplayed a ton of balls, and they didn't count as errors. But like I said, one more year, see if he can pop out 20 or HRs

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
